North Dakota authorities relying on DNA collected from a cigarette butt have charged a man with engaging in a riot for his involvement in a Dakota Access pipeline protest three years ago...

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota authorities relying on DNA collected from a cigarette butt have charged a man with engaging in a riot for his involvement in a Dakota Access pipeline protest three years ago. The Bismarck Tribune reports that Morton County prosecutors also charged 23-year-old Lawrence Malcolm Jr. with felony conspiracy to commit criminal mischief. An arrest warrant was issued Thursday.

    The charges relate to a Sept. 6, 2016, protest on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. An affidavit says more than 100 demonstrators, many with their faces covered, halted construction and vandalized equipment.

    North Dakota crime lab officials notified investigators last month that DNA from a cigarette butt found at the scene was a match for Malcolm, of Sisseton, South Dakota, whose DNA profile was on file from an earlier arrest.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A new sentencing hearing has been set for a man convicted of helping to cover up the death of a Fargo woman whose baby was cut from her womb.

    The North Dakota Supreme Court ruled last month that William Hoehn should not have been sentenced to life in prison because a judge mistakenly classified him as a dangerous special offender based on his criminal record.

    Hoehn, of Fargo, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit kidnapping in the August 2017 attack on Savanna Greywind, whose baby survived. Hoehn's girlfriend, Brooke Crews, admitted she sliced Greywind's baby from her womb and was sentenced to life without parole.

    Defense attorney Scott Brand tells The Associated Press he has yet to receive evidence in the case. The hearing is Oct. 7.

    MINOT, N.D. - As work continues on Phases MI-1, MI-2 and MI-3 of the Mouse River Enhanced Flood Protection Project (MREFPP), several major roadway changes are scheduled over the next week.

    Yesterday, 16th Street SW reopened with two lanes of traffic, one northbound and one southbound. Two lane traffic will be in place until mid-October at which time 16th Street SW is scheduled to fully reopen. Crews will continue exterior roadway work including curb and gutter along with the completion of the closure structure work.

    Contractors for the Phase MI-1 Fourth Avenue flood protection project plan to close the intersection of Third Street NE and Fifth Avenue NE starting on Monday. This closure will allow the underground work to continue in this area, including replacing and/or upsizing watermains, sanitary sewer lines and storm water pipes. The closure at this intersection is estimated to last three weeks.

    Detour routes for Third Street will be clearly marked and include routing vehicles to Broadway and either Central Avenue or Burdick Expressway to avoid the Third Street Bridge and the impacted intersection. Businesses north of the Mouse River, along Third Street will only be accessible from the north, businesses south of the Mouse River, along Third Street will only be accessible from the south. The pedestrian access on the Third Street Bridge will remain open during this time.

    Officials say the schedule is weather permitting.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A highly-publicized North Dakota Air National Guard flight to bring an infant's heart to a waiting transplant patient in California more than 30 years ago is set to be showcased in Fargo.

    The flight of the F-4 Phantom, a supersonic fighter, took place in December 1986 after a Lear jet flown from California to Fargo to pick up the heart broke down in cold weather. The flight took place on emergency orders from North Dakota Gov. George Sinner, who died last year.

    The pilot, current North Dakota Air National Guard Brig. Gen. Bob Becklund, flew the golf-ball sized organ to Stanford Medical Center. KFGO radio reports that the heart recipient, now 33, lives in the San Francisco area.

    The "Heart Flight" display will be unveiled later this month at the Fargo Air Museum.
